Maurice Blackburn gets race ready for ‘In Her Shoes’ relay
26 November 2014
Maurice Blackburn is this year proudly sponsoring the In Her Shoes relay race on 28 November in an effort to raise awareness in the Cairns community of the devastating effects of domestic and family violence.
The head of Maurice Blackburn’sCairns office Tanya Straguszi said the firm were proud to be lending their support to the Cairns Regional Domestic Violence Service event, which invites local men and boys to undertake an obstacle course in women’s shoes.
”We’re very proud to support this worthwhile local event here in Cairns that aims to start vital discussions on the serious effects of domestic and family violence,” Ms Straguszi said.
“Sadly, in Australia there is at least one woman killed every week by their former or current partners.
“Everyone has a right to feel safe in their own home, and we hope that through supporting important events like In Her Shoes that we can help to raise further awareness of this.
“We encourage the local Cairns community to get behind this great cause also and to show support for all people who have been impacted by domestic violence,” she said.
